“Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can follow together.” If this is true, then what could be the real reason behind this deadliest Coronavirus outbreak or COVID-19 outbreak? The reason could be complex, varied, and hard to believe, and in some situations, they’re difficult to deal with. This Wuhan coronavirus or China coronavirus, as it originated from Wuhan, China, has made many things clear for all times to come that have long been misunderstood or ingrained.
Old Apprehensions of Coronavirus Outbreak
The first thing, one can perceive from this pandemic spread is that this could be the punishment of God for the sins committed by the nations and leaders which tend to be called or thought of as developed or well-off. Some might say this is China’s “Bioweapon Test Mishap” or its rogue and repressive regime that launched this virus to drive overseas markets down so that China can buy up Western companies at a low price. Then, some might hold responsible for China responsible for its people’s unhygienic wild animal eating habits. The authenticity of these assumptions can’t be overlooked.
Be comfortable with the reality of death!
God should grant me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change. Then, the courage to change the things I can. Death is inevitable and can haunt us at any moment of life.
Death is a reality that mankind of the 21st century has to deal with. Death shouldn’t be perceived as a tragedy; rather not having a peaceful and meaningful life is a tragedy. It makes things clear that life is all about small events, living by example, and integrity.
Then, you should be contributing towards people and society as a whole constructively and maintain quality relationships with the people and surroundings you encounter. This is because the span of your lifetime is limited. Evaluate your priorities and start concentrating on things that really matter to you. Leave hatred and let yourself be comfortable with things and people outside. Most importantly, keep love in your heart.
Uncomfortable situations created by the COVID-19 outbreak!
The world was expecting or in search of possible situations and causes for imminent World War III. But, nobody would have ever thought of World War III in such a pandemic form. Normally, we come all guns blazing to neutralize our enemy. Now a situation, nations around the world are forcing all their citizens to hide behind the four walls and wait for the invisible enemy to vanish. The television, once popularly termed “the idiot box” has emerged as the most valuable to pass your idle time.
The capitalistic model has given birth to globalization which brought prosperity to limited sections of society and paved the way for the gigantic growth of wealth. Of course, that has been concentrated in the hands of some super-rich individuals.
The growth of the market economy created a tribe of globe-trotting businessmen and professionals who proudly call themselves global citizens who are now carrying the virus all over the world with their irresponsible behavior. This behavior has enticed common people to see globalization suspiciously, because globalization facilitated the movement of not only men, material, and money but also the global virus epidemic, Covid19.
To lessen this impact, governments worldwide are being forced to adopt policies that entail extending many benefits to people, especially the vulnerable, in the form of cash transfers and stimulus packages to compensate for the livelihood crisis. The closed airports, quarantine centers, and isolation wards may well prove to be the end of globalization.
China as a threat to world prosperity!
The world’s obsession with the Chinese model of growth or China’s “Dream Run” of development has ended. The world must wake up to the sins committed by an authoritarian regime and a savaging society. China is Japan’s biggest trading partner under normal circumstances, but imports from China reduced to half after the Coronavirus outbreak. As part of a very important economic decision, the Japanese.
The government has allocated $2.2 billion of its record economic stimulus package to help its manufacturers move production out of China as supply chains between the major trading partners have been deeply affected after the COVID-19 pandemic.
China holds the worst record of being the center of major pandemic outbreaks over the centuries. If you analyze the records of the Chinese Communist Party in handling man-made catastrophes like the Great Famine, the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Square massacre, the suppression of Hong Kong and Tibet freedom struggle, and most recently, the mass internment of Uighurs in Xinjiang. The Chinese Communist Party worked on the old strategy of suppressing the facts and the actual death toll of natural calamities, starting from the Sars virus to the Sichuan earthquake.
With the serious impact of the Coronavirus epidemic worldwide, which has spread to 209 countries, including developed countries like the UK, USA, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, South Korea Iran, and Italy, it is clear that the virus of Xi’s totalitarian rule is not only threatening the health and freedom of Chinese people, but also the entire world.
Narrowing up the gap between the Developing and Developed World!
The coronavirus outbreak or COVID-19 outbreak or made-in-china pandemic outbreak irrespective of the name you may call, it made the following things clear for all times to come:
- It has brought the Haves and the Have-Nots, the Proletariat, and the Bourgeoisie on the same page.
- COVID-19 spread made us realize that even if you’ve everything, it doesn’t guarantee that you’re physically, economically, socially, and politically secure.
- It narrowed down the gap between developed and developing nations. Look at how the developed nations of the world despite all the resources and infrastructure are unable to protect the precious lives of their citizens.
- People of all age groups and social and economic strata have been locked up in their houses to save their respective lives.
- We are at a juncture when nobody is sure about himself or herself. Nobody knows when, how, and which way they will be infected by the virus.
- Poor can’t afford ventilators to stay alive during a serious stage. But the rich can afford the ventilator cost. The tragedy is that there is a shortage of ventilators due to a huge number of patients in the queue.
- The countries that were proud of their socio-economic security and scientific development are helpless. Those modernized and advanced framework looks so irrelevant in the current crisis.
